Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo is set to enter the final season of his current contract next season, but following his team’s elimination from the playoffs, he is focused on coming back healthy.
“My main focus is getting healthy and getting 100% healthy, both internally and externally, and coming back next year a different human being” Oladipo said in the post game news conference, according to The Athletic’s Scott Agness.”

Despite the Pacers being swept, Game 4 saw Oladipo put in his best performance of the series, posting 25 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 steals over 44 minutes.
The Pacers failed to work out a contract extension with Oladipo last offseason, but will have another chance to lock him up long term as the Pacers regroup for another run next season.
